Critical Care Outreach with Lance Gray

International Paramedic Practice with Jace Mullen
Sorry for the delay friends, but I'm sure it was worth the wait (hopefully)... This time round I spoke with Jace Mullen, paramedic and all round great guy based in Colorado, Denver.
We intended to discuss the differences between UK and USA practice but ended up chatting more about the similarities! Topics included EMS roles, education and training, specialties, referral and discharge, medications, the law, and (of course) cardiac arrest.

Airway Management with Scott Hardy
Thank you all so much for listening, and for your kind feedback. Its really encouraging to see so much engagement and I'm looking forward to sharing some more meaningful conversations with you in the future.
In part two of my discussion with Critical Care Paramedic Scott Hardy, we spoke about the management of foreign body airway obstruction, airway management in trauma patients, out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, and paramedic intubation. Scott is such a knowledgeable practitioner and it was great to hear his thoughts on the nuances of these topics.

Cor he’s so hunky and clever.
I’ve really enjoyed the Pre-Hospital airway management podcast. It included some great tips and ideas to mentally prepare for difficult scenarios.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Scott in the past, he’s top of his game and a genuinely nice guy (for the most part).
